What is the Truth About Loose Vaginas?
When it comes to vaginas, there are many myths surrounding them, including myths regarding their “looseness” and “tightness.” While these myths, of course, have absolutely no merit, it doesn’t stop them from cropping up time and time again. Because they can be harmful to both a woman’s image and self-esteem, it is vital to debunk those myths and head straight to the facts. So breathe a sigh of relief and read on to learn the truth about loose vaginas and what it may mean to you if you find yourself dealing with this condition.
Common Myths About “Loose” Vaginas
A few common myths that are associated with the tightness or looseness of a vagina include:
- Intercourse Causes Vaginal Loosening.
This myth was started long ago to prevent women from having too many sexual partners or to keep them from having sex before marriage. However, it is entirely untrue; in fact, sexual intercourse, even a lot of sexual intercourse, does not make the vagina “loose.”
- The Loss of Virginity Loosens the Vagina Permanently.
This is another one of those myths that were put into place to shame women into staying virgins until their wedding night. It is important to note that losing one’s virginity does not have anything to do with the tightness of the vagina. In fact, it is impossible to tell whether or not a woman is a virgin just by the feel of her vagina alone.
- The Vagina Becomes Loose After Childbirth.
Many people think that just because a woman gives birth vaginally, that her vagina will become loose and no longer retain that “tightness” that it once had. While it is true that the vagina stretches in order to allow the birth of a baby, it is vital to note that, like elastic, it does go back to its normal shape and size, meaning that it will feel almost (if not perfectly!) the same as it once did.
What Happens if My Vagina Feels Loose?
While separating truths from myths is important, especially when it comes to sexual matters, it is important to know that the vagina can lose some of its elasticity over time, whether by multiple vaginal births, age, or even genetics. When this happens, however, a vaginal rejuvenation procedure can be performed.
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation?
A vaginal rejuvenation procedure, or a vaginoplasty, can be performed to help the vagina feel tighter. While this procedure can be performed on women of any age, many older women who are done having children tend to opt for the procedure to help regain any tightness they may have lost due to childbirth and age.
Because the muscles in the vagina can become more relaxed and lose their elasticity over time, a vaginoplasty can correct this issue. This outpatient procedure is done in about sixty to ninety minutes and is done using a laser to help tighten and tone the muscles in the vagina.
